Re: Government choice
Yes that's basically right.  It's a secured, government only data center using Microsoft Windows Azure, which encompasses scalable, on-demand IaaS, PaaS and Data cloud services. It will allow government customers to  build, deploy, and manage applications while adhereing to federal security compliance regulations.

Government choice
To my understanding the government-only cloud is a kind of private cloud with enhanced security. Here the similar kind of thing happens in China. The government agencies use cloud computing widely but all come from local vendors in the form of private cloud. For the cloud service provider, it would be a good thing to win government procurement deal - compared to hardware offering, the cloud computing service offering more a kind of long-lasting business.:-)
